“Last year, over 19,000 people came through the gates of the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market during Wingfest,” said Wingfest Chair of The Arc of High Point, Joel Fingerhut. “That is great exposure for all participating restaurants, as well as event sponsors.” He added, “In addition to great food, we offer live music from the Fabulous Flashbacks and our own Heart & Soul Choir.”
This year we will feature a North Carolina Micro Brew Garden that will include Natty Green’s, Pig Pounder Brewery, Preyers Brewery and Bull City Cider. You can enjoy Wings and Beer!
Clay JD Walker from 93.1 The Wolf will be with us throughout the event and will judge our annual “Lord of the Wings” wing eating contest. Who will win the medallion and $100 grand prize for eating the most wings in 1 minute? He will also judge two Chicken Dance Contest, one for the kids and one for adults! This year we have the addition of a Wingfest Cornhole Tournament.
